A 15-YEAR-OLD boy has been charged with stabbing two men at a birthday party that descended into chaos in Sydney’s west.
It’s understood the boy was already on bail when he allegedly stabbed the men outside a house at Quakers Hill last night.
It was around 10.30pm when police, including the dog squad, were called to reports of a brawl at the Sidney Close home.

Officers arrived to find two 22-year-old men with stab wounds.
One of them had his lung punctured in the attack after he was stabbed in the ‘body and back’, police said.
The second man sustained a less serious wound under his arm.
Both were taken by ambulance to Westmead Hospital where they remain today in a stable condition.
A crime scene was established at the Quakers Hill home which was forensically examined overnight.
Five men, aged between 18 and 20, and six teenage boys, aged between 15 and 17, were arrested at the scene and taken to Riverstone Police Station where they spent the night being questioned by detectives.
In a statement a short time ago, police confirmed one of them – a 15-year-old boy from Blacktown – had been charged.
He’s been charged with a long list of offences, including going armed with intent to commit an indictable offence and wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The boy was also charged with affray and breaching bail.
He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear in a children’s court later today.
A 20-year-old man has also been charged with breaching bail and will appear in Parramatta Bail Court this afternoon.
Investigations into the melee are ongoing.
